I received complimentary product from Orvis for this review.
This was a long, challenging week with so much to do, and take care of that I felt physically, and emotionally exhausted by the time my calendar showed the weekend. I needed some unscheduled, unplanned time off where we just strolled around, took in fresh air, and had uninterrupted conversations.
Luckily the weather cooperated fully with a sunny, warm, and gorgeous day on Saturday. We first walked casually at one of our favorite parks which is right by the river while the kids ran around, and afterwards we went to a French coffee shop we frequent to sit outside and sip lattes. There were even two friendly ducks visiting our table looking for crumbs. Adorable!
STYLE TIP: This casual Saturday called for a casual, comfortable outfit which is still stylish. The sun was out, and I felt like wearing straw accessories. They remind me of vacations, and good memories. I started my look with this lovely hat.
STYLE TIP: One thing you’ll see me in quite a bit this season is off the shoulder tops & dresses. I mentioned how I’ve always loved shoulder details in this previous post. When I look back to my summer outfits over the years, I can’t remember of a time when I haven’t worn a couple new off the shoulder items each spring/summer.
I love that Off the Shoulder Style is a big trend for this summer. This means I can find even more pieces available in stores like this soft, and comfortable navy top which is the perfect summer basic. Every time I shop now, I get drawn to various off the shoulder beach cover ups, blouses, and dresses in many different colors; can’t stop myself haha. My summer closet is already filling up with these purchases.
I paired the effortless Off the Shoulder top with my comfortable distressed boyfriend jeans. The espadrille wedges added a bit more of that straw look. I ADORE these shoes. I can walk in them for a long time, and love the lift they give me. <3
STYLE TIP: Of course I felt like my outfit needed some bright color; you know I love to have color in my outfits. This clutch was perfect for that pop of cheerfulness my outfit needed. It’s a very practical pouch that can hold all your essentials, and at $28 it’s great value as you can easily double it for beach use.
Both my Straw Hat, and Pouch are from ORVIS. The new women’s spring collection from ORVIS is outdoor ready staying true to the brand but is full of feminine colors, floral prints, and nature inspired patterns. I love how the pieces are both functional but fashionable, and versatile enough to be used for weekend activities like a hike with the family as well as for stylish spring/summer looks.
